Gunfire heard near mosque, military base in Tunisian capital

World Bulletin / News Desk 

Gunfire erupted near a mosque and military base in the Tunisian capital Tunis on Monday, and a nearby school was evacuated, state news agency TAP and a security official said.

A Tunisian soldier opened fire on other troops at a military base in the capital on Monday, an army spokesman said, clarifying that the shooting, which prompted the evacuation of a nearby school, was not an external attack.

It was not immediately clear what had triggered the shooting or if there were casualties at the Bouchoucha base.

Details of the incident were still unclear, but Tunisian security forces have been on alert since an attack in March on the Bardo national museum.
